Title sums it up. National Trust have it all sussed, personally I still prefer the Gardens as they are magic and you keep finding new bits you have never found (or have changed so much, especially by season)

I live nearby and visit regularly, it's one of the best National Trust places in the UK, worth a visit.

Mount Stewart is an excellent day out for the whole family the lake with the ducks and swans is amazing, the formal gardens are a must to see and the mansion which is under a makeover is the icing on the cake there is also a restaurnat and gorgeous gift shop

We visited Mount Stewart House and Gardens this weekend as we had family over from England. It is breathtaking and great value for money. (A small fee is paid at reception on the way in.)
The gardens are astounding, a photographers dream. We started with a walk around the lake. You take it at your own pace and enjoy as much detail as you can. The flowers, the different trees, the birds and swans. It was an brisk autumnal day when we went, so the colours were amazing. After our walk we went into the restaurant and had a delightful afternoon tea. The staff are very friendly and helpful, even though the place was quite busy. Afterwards we just made it in time for a tour around the house.

Our tour guide was a volunteer called William. This man knew his stuff!! He was excellent, very informative and the speed of the tour was fast enough to pack it all in, but slow enough to enjoy each room. We even had a brief meeting with Lady Lawson, the current resident. I have to say that William was excellent, funny and even helped the children with their quiz sheets they got on the way in.

We were sad to leave this place and will definately be going back. Our visitors were very impressed and enjoyed every single moment of Mount Stewart. We will be back!!

Marvellous gardens, interesting house. Guided tours only - which need to be booked - but good. Make sure you book this on arrival - someone arrived at end of day and found they were fully booked. Limited access to house - but it is being restored.
